I have been asked on numerous occassions what my favourite product finds have been from around the globe this year. I thought I would write this post so that my answer could be read by anyone interested.

The products I am about to list are not an all inclusive list of every amazing product I have found, but they are certainly the ones that come to mind when I think of manufactured products that would be useful for weight management or lifestyle disease management for people around the world.

Food industry gurus..I think many people from a range of countries would be very grateful if some of these products were imported and shared amongst the different nations!

Skyr- High protein cultured dairy “yoghurt like” product from Iceland- 19g protein for around 100 calories

Siggis Icelandic high protein yoghurt (without any artificial sweeteners) – Found in NYC

Plant sterol enriched yoghurt with active culture “shots” – 2 ‘serves’ plant sterols per container = daily requirements for cholesterol lowering effects in one shot – Found in London

Muscle milk oats- breakfast on the go- 30g protein and 4g of fibre for 300 calories- this will get you through the morning! (and only 4g of sugar) – Found in Finland

Plant sterol enriched oats- cholesterol lowering to the max! – Finland

Deboles oat bran pasta- 170 calories with 7g protein and 5g fibre per serve! – Found in NYC

Dense rye breads- super high in fibre naturally – Found in Finland

PB2- powdered peanut butter- 45 calories, 1g fibre and 4g protein per serve- Found in NYC

Kale chips- 6g protein, 3g fibre and 140 calories- Found in NYC

Chobani greek style yoghurt- plain = 100 calories and 19g protein – Found in NYC

Damascus bakery- Flax roll ups- 12g protein, 9g fibre, 110 calories, 1000mg ALA omega 3’s- Found in NYC

There have certainly been more products that I have come across that are worthy of a mention, however these were definitely my most enjoyed supermarket products.

From a weight management or lifestyle disease management perspective they do certainly appear to be able to serve a purpose and could be enjoyed and useful for people all over the world!

Next time you are in the country these are from…I suggest you give them a try if you are interested.

For now,
